Formitalia launches furniture collection inspired by Mercedes-Benz cars

Article by Anita Panait, on April 16, 2012

Mercedes-Benz has been the epitome of pure luxury and high quality for generations. The company has been building cars that often exceed the luxurious expectations of the privileged riding public. Now, Formitalia Luxury Group attempts to bring the luxury, styling and quality that Mercedes-Benz exudes into your living room.

Yes, Mercedes-Benz, in collaboration with Formitalia, one of the leading Italian designer furniture manufacturers, is offering a furniture collection under the Mercedes-Benz Style label. The furniture collection is consists of a sofa, a chaise longue, a dining room table, various chairs, a sideboard, a shelf unit with integrated home theatre system, a chest of drawers and a bed.

The collection, developed with designers from Formitalia, will be presented at the "Salone Internazionale del Mobile", scheduled on April 17 – 22, 2012 in Milan, Italy. Formitalia produced all of the furniture pieces.

The furniture collection will be available worldwide starting October 2012 through selected furniture stores, showrooms and interior design stores.  Gianni Simone Overi, chief executive of the Formitalia Luxury Group, said they are delighted to be able to bring Mercedes’ elegance into the home.

Reflecting Mercedes’ styling cues, each of the seating furniture features elegant design that offers comfort to those sitting on them. The wooden backrest shells were based from stylish expressions of the seat shells in the current research vehicles. The padding upholstered in leather with uniquely styled aluminium frame offers a contrasting yet appealing look.

For more styling accents, one could opt to acquire the fabric cover that features a natural pattern. Curved lines present in the F125 were applied on the furniture, as they defined the individual surface areas, in effect visually segmenting the piece.

The collection’s dining room table and sideboard also get the same styling cues; most noticeable is the table's central aluminium beam, with four legs extended like sculptured spokes. The sideboard features a glass door with a surrounding bevel that suggests the looks of the air intake on a sports car. The collection carries a subtle Mercedes-Benz Style logo.
